Dr. Dayne Sweres
Dayne graduated his Masters degree in Osteopathy with distinction at RMIT University. Since his studies he has been quite active in his continued professional development, learning relentlessly and honing his skills practically.
Dayne returned to RMIT in 2016 as tutor for the teaching of manipulation techniques. He has always had a knack for explaining complex concepts, especially regarding the human body in a simple and logical fashion. This helps his patients understand what is happening with their body, why they’re feeling what they are and what can be done about it.
His approach to diagnosis and treatment is methodical and holistic and his focus is on effective relief of pain in the short term but creating healthier biomechanics and movement patterns to achieve long term sustainability. Dayne has a keen interest in treating and managing conditions which span from postural issues associated with sedentary desk work to sporting or activity related injuries.
In conjunction with skilful application of manual therapy Dayne offers postural advice, movement retraining and exercise rehabilitation methods to help get you moving well and feeling well for the long term.
“The greatest satisfaction for me is from getting people pain free and back doing what they enjoy."
